Our Guide To The 120th Annual Penn Relays At Franklin Field, Racing Into Town Tomorrow, Thursday, April 24 Through Saturday, April 26

The 120th-annual Penn Relays take over Franklin Field at UPenn with three full days of track events, an international festival and plenty of healthy competition, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 24 through 26. (Photo by D. Tavani for Visit Philadelphia)

Race to University City this weekend, folks. The Penn Relays, a three-day track-and-field celebration running Thursday, Friday and Saturday — April 24 through 26 — returns to the University of Pennsylvania campus with hundreds of Olympic-caliber college and high school track stars.

Watch accomplished athletes take on competitors from across the globe in games like the pole vault, long jump, high jump, javelin, 400 meter dashes, 100 meter sprints and more all day long beginning tomorrow, April 24.

Read on for our guide to the action.

Overview

 
A late April tradition, the annual Penn Relay Carnival is now in its 120th year, making it the world’s first — and largest — annual relay meet.

Each year, the annual event pulls in crowds of up to 100,000 to the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field, where spectators know they’ll see some of the world’s top track athletes compete and begin Olympic careers.

In addition to the athletes, the fans also hail from all over the country and the world.

Beyond the on-track games, there is an accompanying festival that lasts all three days of the event with food, crafts and souvenirs along the streets that surround the stadium.

Tip: The main day of the Penn Relays is Saturday when the USA vs. The World races kick off in the afternoon.

For the full schedule of events, click here.

History

 
The Penn Relays’ status as America’s largest amateur track meet goes back to the very first running, held in 1895 to stoke flagging student interest in track and field. That event drew 5,000 spectators, the largest audience for a track meet in Philadelphia up to that time.

The Relays have played an important role in Philadelphia’s cultural life from the beginning. It was one of few major events that accepted African-American competitors, and it was one of the high points on the African-American social calendar.

Tickets

 
Tickets are required for entry into Franklin Field to watch the races. Two levels of tickets are available on the first two days of the event; general admission and reserved seating. For those who want to be as close to the action as possible, reserved tickets are the way to go.

On the final day of the Penn Relays, three levels of tickets are available; gold (which have now sold out), silver and bronze. Gold seats are closest to the field, followed by silver and then bronze.

All tickets are available online.

Take note, tickets are not required to check out the dozens of vendors that set up shop outside of the track.

Getting There

 
Getting to Franklin Field is seriously easy. Take the Market-Frankford Subway line to 34th and Market streets and walk the few blocks to the track at 33rd and Spruce streets.

For those coming in from the suburbs, take your designated Regional Rail train to 30th Street Station and walk up to Franklin Field.

For those driving in, parking is plentiful. Parking garages are located at 3335 Chestnut Street, 4009 Walnut Street, 119 S. 38th Street and more. Click here for the full list of nearby parking garages. Street parking is also be available.
